Mornings with the One Percent™ Was 9 till Noon Today, Replays are Below

Arnold, CA…Mornings with the One Percent™ is live weekday mornings from 7-10am. The premise for the show is that the USDA ranked all 3,142 counties or county equivalents in the USA on a livability or desirability scale based on factors such as climate, scenic beauty, bodies of water for recreation, humidity and much more. All of our area ranked not only in the top one percent but in the top one half of one percent. So in the ups and downs of daily life remember you don’t have to be a Gates, Buffett or Bezos to live like the one percent. Just live here!

Geoffrey Berman, the former top prosecutor in the Manhattan US Attorney’s office, was reportedly fired shortly after he refused to sign a letter criticizing New York mayor Bill de Blasio over his social distancing restrictions.

The Wall Street Journal reports:

The day before Attorney General William Barr abruptly announced plans to replace [Berman] as the Manhattan U.S. Attorney, supervisors in Mr. Barr’s Justice Department asked Mr. Berman to sign a letter criticizing [de Blasio] for the city’s enforcement of social-distancing rules to block religious gatherings but not recent street protests, people familiar with the matter said.

Mr. Berman refused to sign the letter Thursday, after engaging in a brief back-and-forth drafting process, the people said. Mr. Berman voiced strong objections to the letter, particularly its assertions that Mr. de Blasio imposed a double standard, and described the letter as a political stunt that would strain relations between his office and the city, two of the people said.

The letter, which was meant to be signed by the head of the Justice Department’s civil-rights division, Eric Dreiband, and Mr. Berman, was never sent, according to the people.

It isn’t known what role, if any, the letter played in the subsequent standoff between Messrs. Barr and Berman that began on Friday night and ended about 18-hours later with Mr. Berman stepping aside from the powerful Manhattan federal prosecutor’s office after President Trump fired him.

Some of Trump’s advisers, including White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany, have similarly accused state and local leaders of imposing a double standard when it comes to large events.

However, the recent George Floyd protests have mostly taken place outdoors, thus presenting a lowered risk of coronavirus spread, according to public health experts. There have also been documented coronavirus outbreaks among attendees of church services, as the CDC has pointed out.

Trump dodged a question about whether he ordered coronavirus testing to be slowed, even though he claimed at his Tulsa rally on Saturday that he had.

Asked about the claim by Scripps reporter Joe St George, Trump deflected, saying, “We do more testing than any country in the world by far.”

VIDEO: Just asked President Trump if he actually ordered testing to be slowed down. He said in his Saturday speech he did. He didn't answer the direct question.

June 22, 2020
The president reiterated his complaint that more testing yields a higher number of positive results. “As you do more tests, it shows more and more cases,” Trump said. “If we did slow it down, we wouldn’t show nearly as many cases.”

Pressed again on whether he asked the testing to be slowed, Trump said, “If it did slow down, frankly, I think we’re way ahead of ourselves, if you want to know the truth. We’ve done too good a job. ... The reason we have more cases [is] because we do more testing than any other country by far.”

However, public health experts have said the high number of US cases is much more attributable to states reopening and the relaxing of social distancing protocols.

The president’s comments also appeard at odds with claims from his advisers that he was just joking when he said he ordered testing to be slowed.

    On a lighter note: I really enjoyed listening to Mark Huberty and some of the earlier history of Calaveras County. It's a nice refreshing thing to listen to something like this amid all the chaos going on in our world. The Huberty family goes way back to the gold days and the origins of Calaveras County I believe. My parents (late) also enjoyed learning about the history of the county and enjoyed learning history about the state park when they worked there as docents. Kudos to Mark for enlightening us with this information and about our county's rich history. Thank you, Steven R Smith

Why is dumb, dumb Edson back? He sold his burger stand and said he was moving away. No one wants to hear from him ever again after he set out county back with his careless spending, and then jeopardized our safety bringing in felons and drug addicts.
